Publication Design WASH in Schools

WASH in Schools promotes social inclusion and individual self-respect by offering an alternative to the stigma and marginalization associated with hygiene issues, it empowers all students – and especially encourages girls and female teachers. In recognition of the positive impact on girls’ school attendance and achievement, initiatives around the world are addressing adolescent girls’ menstrual hygiene management (MHM) needs through WASH in Schools programming.

In 2012, UNICEF and the Center for Global Safe Water at Emory University began a program to support collaborative research on exploring menstrual hygiene management (MHM) challenges faced by female students in four countries: Bolivia, the Philippines, Rwanda, and Sierra Leone. This report presents the scope of education and health challenges facing girls in Cochabamba, Bolivia.
